CSWCD 8: Window of Tolerance
The "window of tolerance" is a key term for contemporary trauma informed practices. In our use, it is also a key term for understanding how to work with complex systems. The overlap, of course, is that humans are complex adaptive systems and trauma is one of the many events that can happen to a complex system. By studying and understanding the window of tolerance, we begin to adopt language and skills to help a person heal and not get further dysregulated, whether it be from trauma or other adverse life patterns and events.
